Asimov's laws of robotics
"We hope to ... further develop this robot and quickly bring it and the marsupial robot deployment system to market. In the future this system might also include other payloads and sensors which would increase its versatility and expand its mission profile."
Obviously given their hostile mission scenario, they'll soon be having these things armed so once they can identify them from hostages they can also take out the pirates. But what happens when someone uploads software making one of these robokillers self aware and they decide all humans are the enemy ?
